Nehemiah – Finding Opportunities in Days of Difficulty (40 min)

PART 7 – Josh Jacob preaches on Nehemiah, a man who, returning from Babylon with a deep sense of yearning for the glory of God and the welfare of His city and His people, rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem amidst all kinds of difficulties and opposition.

Witnessing to Hindus (48 min)

FOCUS ON EVANGELISM Part 11 – Josh Jacob begins by looking at how the West has been infiltrated by Hindu philosophy repackaged as visualisation, yoga, quantum healing and much else. He traces the history of this phenomenon back to the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago in 1893, up through the Beatles in the 1960’s, through to today. He explains Hindu concepts such as Karma, Moksha, Nirvana and Maya and exposes the deception through the prism of Genesis Ch 3.…

The Call (38 min)

FOCUS ON EVANGELISM Part 1 – Josh Jacob preaches on the urgent and scriptural requirement for every single believer to be interested in and to actively pursue the salvation of others.

David’s Prayer for Pardon (42 min)

PART 4 – Josh Jacob looks at Psalm 51 and examines David’s “prayer for pardon” – a heartfelt confession that followed on from his sin with Bathsheba. The Psalm (v1-10 repentance, v11-15 repercussion, v16-17 redemption, v18-19 restoration) reveals our personal capacity to sin, the 7-fold consequences of sin, and the 3 principles that speak to a “comeback from sin” (Message preached 26th May 2019)

Why I Am Premillennial (35 min)

PART 11 – After some general introductory remarks about the Bible’s prophecies of an “age to come” in which Edenic conditions will be restored, Joshua Jacob explains why he is premillennial in his eschatology. After dismissing amillennialism (no literal 1,000 year kingdom) and postmillennialism (the church brings in the kingdom through the gospel), Josh looks at the second coming of Christ that closes the current age in judgment and ushers in the 1,000 millennial kingdom of Christ – which is…

Why I Am Baptised (37 min)

PART 6 – Josh Jacob preaches on “Why I am Baptised”. He explains the meaning of the word baptism (to dip or immerse) and outlines the biblical foundation for “believer’s baptism” as opposed to the non-biblical idea of infant baptism, sometimes called pedobaptism. He uses an acrostic of the word baptism to structure his message: Basis, Act, People, Teaching, Imperative, Signal, Motive. (Readings: John 3:22-30, Acts 2:37-42, 8:5-20, 26-30, Rom 6:1-4).(Message preached 17th Feb 2019)

Why I Am a Creationist (56 min)

The Great White Throne (37 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 11 – In the final part of the series, Josh Jacob outlines (from Rev 20:1-15) how the world will end – with 1. God’s judgment being poured out on the final rebellion of man at the end of the Millennium, and 2. the judgment of Satan, who is cast into the lake of fire, and 3. the judgment of the “wicked dead” whose names are not found written in the book of life. A solemn…

God Has Spoken in His Son (43 min)

PART 12 – Josh Jacob looks at Hebrews 1:1-3 under the headings: “The Son previewed”, “The Son presented” and “The Son preeminent”. The writer to the Hebrews gives a 7-part description of the excellencies of Christ’s person and work in these tightly packed and theologically rich verses which stand at the beginning of an epistle that presents Christ as “better than all” (Message preached 20th Dec 2018)

The Judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah (35 min)

THE JUDGMENTS OF SCRIPTURE PART 4 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah. From Ezekiel 16:48-50 and Luke 17:26-32 he outlines the sins of these ancient cities (features repeated in our day) and how Abraham pleaded with God to spare the cities from judgment. The Bible says “As it was in the days of Lot…even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed” (Message preached 4th Nov 2018)

Commandment No 9 (38 min)

PART 10 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 9th commandment – “Thou shalt not bear false witness”. He reminds us that the devil (diabolos) is “the accuser” or “the slanderer”, before outlining numerous ways in which we can be a false witness and use the tongue improperly – perjury, rumour-mongering, flattery, insinuation, slander and promise breaking. In Proverbs 6:17-19 “a lying tongue” and “a false witness” are 2 of the 7 things the Lord hates (Message preached 16th Sept 2018)

Separation Unto God (36 min)

PART 8 – Joshua Jacob points us to the God of holiness who calls us to Himself in separation. A comprehension of the holy God who has separated us to Himself (Psa 4:3) will save us from holding the doctrine of separation merely as a dry cold fact. Rather, in the words of the hymn writer, “The things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace”. The Lord is looking for dedicated, separated servants…

Commandment No 5 (46 min)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 5th commandment – “Honour your father and mother”, the first commandment with promise. Children can honour their parents by living an obedient life, lifting their parents’ load, learning their parents’ lessons and lavishing love on their parents. Parents can act towards their children in such a way as to encourage them to show honour – by loving, lifting, limiting, and leading them, and laughing with them (Message preached 20th May 2018)

Commandment No 2 (42 min)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 2nd commandment – “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images” etc. He explains the difference between the 1st and 2nd commandment before contrasting true worship with false worship. Not only is the worship of idols prohibited, but worshipping the true God through idols is also prohibited. God, the supreme, sovereign, self-existent Creator is a jealous God – He desires, deserves and demands worship to Him and Him alone (Message preached…

The Doctrine of Marriage (45 min)

PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE Part 1 – Joshua Jacob takes up “the doctrine of marriage” from Gen 1 and 2, Prov 31 and Eph 5. Marriage and the family is the basis of human society and is introduced in the Bible long before “government”. Marriage is the total commitment of the total person for a total life. Josh outlines the reason, responsibilties, relationships, requirements and rhythm of marriage in a wide ranging message aimed at preparing young couples for marriage (Message…

The Christian and Time Management (44 min)

Joshua Jacob preaches on the challenge of personal devotion and assembly commitment in a busy fast-paced world.

Investigating the Bible (1) (43 min)

PART 7 – Josh Jacob preaches on “investigating the Bible” under three headings – 1. Why come to the Bible? 2. Welcoming the Bible, and 3. Working through the Bible.

In Bible study – look for God, learn about Christ, listen to the Spirit and “live it out” (Message preached 11th Mar 2018)

Preservation and Transmission (42 min)

PART 3 – Josh Jacob traces the chain of movement from God to man – revelation, inspiration, inscripturation, preservation, transmission, canonisation and translation.

Women Who Knew Paul (43 min)

PART 11 – Josh Jacob closes the sermon series on “Women in the Bible” with a message about women known to the apostle Paul, including Phoebe, Priscilla, Lydia and two sisters in Philippi named Euodias and Syntyche. The commendation that Paul gives these and other women forever puts to rest any idea that Paul was a misogynist! Josh starts in Romans 16 with a long list of names commended by Paul, including numerous women (Message preached 19th Nov 2017)

Esther (36 min)

PART 7 – Josh Jacob preaches on Esther, the Jewish orphan girl who became the Queen of an empire. The narrative in the Bible book of Esther uniquely displays the “Master Weaver” – God – in action, not mentioned by name, but ever moving behind the scenes. Esther was “governed by His providence”, “grew according to His plan”, was “guarded by His power” and “guided by His purpose” (Message preached 15th Oct 2017)

Jochebed and Miriam (41 min)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob preaches on Jochebed and Miriam – mother and daughter – from Exodus 2 and Hebrews 11.

The Church at Philadelphia (39 min)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the church at Philadelphia (Rev 3:7-13). This was the assembly that had a little strength, that “kept God’s word” and did not deny His name. To them was given the promise “I will keep thee from the hour of temptation”. They were an evangelistic assembly, before whom God has set an open door. Much can be learned from a study of this commendable company of the Lord’s people! (Message preached 23rd July 2017)

Servant Song No 4 – Isaiah Ch 53 (45 min)

PART 5 – Joshua Jacob expounds the fourth of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 52:13-53:12. This jewel of a chapter, called “the 5th gospel” by some expositors, outlines the birth, life, appearance, sufferings, death, resurrection and reign of the Servant of Jehovah -the Lord Jesus Christ – over 700 years before he was born – and caps off this ministry series on a Christ-exalting note (Message preached May 28th 2017)

Servant Song No 2 – Isaiah Ch 49 (35 min)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob expounds the second of Isaiah’s 4 “servant songs” from Isaiah 49:1-7. He sees the Servant – the Lord Jesus Christ – endorsed, expected, established, exonerated, extolled, and the Servants’s work extended in this poetic song of Isaiah – all in contrast to the failed Servant of Israel, who will yet be blessed through the perfect Servant Christ (Message preached May 14th 2017)

The Son of Man (38 min)

PART 11 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the Lord’s title “the Son of Man”. After spending some time in Daniel Ch 7 where this title of Christ first occurs, Josh moves on to discuss its occurrences in the Gospels and in the Revelation.

The Son of the Father (31 min)

PART 8 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the expression “the Son of the Father” which only occurs once in the New Testament, in the 2nd epistle of John, verse 3. Josh highlights two main issues – the affection of the Father for the Son, and the attributes of the Son re. the Father. This message reaffirms the eternal Sonship of Christ, His equality of essence with the Father and His position as the well-beloved One (Message preached 5th Mar 2017)

The God of Glory, Grace and Comfort (42 min)

PART 3 – Josh Jacob preaches on three Divine titles: “the God of glory” (Acts 7:2), “the God of all grace” (1 Pet 5:10) and “the God of all comfort” (2 Cor 1:2). Working from Acts 7, Josh develops the theme of the “God of glory” appearing to Abraham, and how Moses and Stephen also saw the “glory of God” in that chapter. Peter is then developed as a man who knew much of the God of all grace, while Job…

Daniel’s 70 Weeks (40 min)

Dispensationalism Part 11 – Joshua Jacob looks at the prophecy of Daniel’s 70 weeks (490 years) from Daniel 9, in which chapter we have the Period Designated, the People described, the Place defined, the Purpose determined and the Programme deployed.

Now God determines…

Dispensationalism Part 5 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the difference between the Kingdom and the Church.
